Si Datu Bua Boat

Si Datu Bua, meaning Beloved Princess is the sister vessel to Silolona. The newer of the two boats, she is 120ft in length and like Silolona built to the same high standards and to German Lloyds specifications with luxury accommodation for up to six guests in three beautifully appointed cabins. Equally as enchanting, stylish and comfortable she will cruise you sublimely through the turquoise waters of the Coral Triangle.


Her teak wooden deck provides a vast space to relax, read, sunbath and to dine under the stars. She is serviced by eleven experienced and extremely friendly crew ensuring your party of six are very well looked after.

Amenities include a full range of aquatic equipment available for use. She is a fully licensed and equipped PADI Dive Center, with two tenders and one rib and all guest divers will be guided by the experienced certified PADI instructor. Services can include various types of traditional massage and yoga and throughout your trip you will be spoilt with delicious Western or Indonesian meals prepared by the talented on board chef.


Si Datu Bua absolutely and unequivocally embodies the essence and spirit of Indonesia and those who sail her leave, having experienced the diving trip of a lifetime.
